A doctor who seen my toddler and said whoooing cough asked how many weeks I was and called up a few people and said my jab isn't due until I'm 28 weeks and has gave it to me even though I'm 25. Will this be ok?

The guidelines changed earlier this year, so it can be done any time from 20-32 weeks, so you should be fine! www.rcog.org.uk/en/news/rcog-statement-pertussis-whooping-cough-vaccination-now-offered-from-20-weeks-of-pregnancy/
